And We Mean *Giant* Squid Necklace

Via Laughing Squid...

Paris-based jewelry design team Hanna Bernhard has created a truly giant squid necklace, over a foot long.

Can't say it's my cup of tea, but it sure is big. More rhinestone cephalopods and an interview with the artists here.

Photographic Art of the Tentacle

A friend recently linked me to the stunning photography of Elisa Lazo de Valdez.

In this series of black and white photographs, the artist uses the female form and the tentacles of an octopus to create beautiful and unique compositions. You can check out the full series of prints in her Etsy Shop!
